** To make things even more awesome, the aforementioned Ink Spots' song, was the song Black Isle wanted to use for the intro cinematic for the ''first'' Fallout game - but they were unable to secure the rights. Instead, they settled for the Ink Spots' ''Maybe''.

** It's worth noting, however, that it's only seen as this in comparison to the first 2 games and ''Tactics''. In comparison to it's direct predecessor, ''VideoGame/FalloutBrotherhoodOfSteel'', it's universally seen as a SurprisinglyImprovedSequel, mainly due to the fans universally considering that game being FanonDiscontinuity (and Bethesda agreed with them, putting [=BoS=] in CanonDiscontinuity).

* SpiritualSuccessor: To Bethesda's run on the ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'' games from the 1980s to 1990s. Ironically, the ''Broken Steel'' add-on for this game would be released within the same month as ''Film/TerminatorSalvation''.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: The game was hugely influential for the seventh generation of consoles, for many reasons- it's incredibly large and detailed open world, it's adaption of traditional RPG mechanics into a first-person perspective with VATS and dialogue trees as well as it being the first introduction to the world of ''Fallout'' for many gamers that missed it on PC. Nowadays, while it's still beloved, it's sequels ''New Vegas'' and ''Fallout 4'' are more appreciated for being major improvements to the standard that ''3'' set. Quest design is improved in ''New Vegas'' as well as having a more dynamic story, and ''4'' is a massive improvement in the gameplay department with updated shooting and looting mechanics. This leaves ''3'' as the weakest of the three of the games, though it's still appreciated for it's own merits as being a fun game and for the popularization of WideOpenSandbox and it's subsequent evolution with games like Videogame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim, Videogame/FarCry3, and Franchise/AssassinsCreed during the latter half of the seventh generation of consoles.

*** And you may as well consider that perk outright necessary, because otherwise you'll have to go to Paradise Falls and save those kids who were enslaved. Doing that mission isn't the problem; in fact it can be fun, righteous and cathartic to gun down evildoers and rescue children. The problem comes when you get back to Little Lamplight, because Mayor McFuckface has left his post on the door, and now wanders around Little Lamplight at random. And there is no map marker to guide you to him. And Lamplight is broken up into several areas divided by loading screen. In short, if you don't have the FriendToAllChildren perk, be prepared to spend god knows how long running around Lamplight like an idiot looking for the little bastard just so you can turn the quest in and get to Vault 87.

** The Tunnel Snakes are an ''extremely'' minor group of a few teenage greaser vault-dwellers that get wiped out before the tutorial ends. But their lameness and bravado caught on, as did their livening up of one of the more boring parts of the game. Requests or mods to make the Tunnel Snakes a major faction crop up with some frequency. Also, [[https://youtu.be/S0ximxe4XtU they rule.]]

** The Japanese version of the game [[BannedInChina censored]] the name of the Fat Man, renaming it the "Nuka Launcher"; ''[[VideoGame/Fallout4 Nuka-World]]'' would eventually introduce an ''actual'' [[http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Nuka-nuke_launcher Nuka-Cola branded version of the Fat Man]], complete with the [[http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Nuka-nuke modified nukes]] to match.

* DisappointingLastLevel: The last story missions is designed for low-level players as the devs assumed that players would just breeze through the entire game, playing only the story missions and leveling up accordingly. As such the player character has absolutely no part in the final battle. Sarah Lyons and her Lyon's Pride mop up anyone Liberty Prime didn't already kill, Colonel Autumn can be talked out of fighting and if you don't want to keep SaveScumming he and his two goons aren't all that tough as Autumn doesn't have any armor nor heavy firepower and his guards are just rank and file soldiers. And then the ending: either kill yourself and get the "Good" ending or send Lyons and get the "Bad" ending and if you want to send Fawkes, your radiation immune Super Mutant buddy who's life you saved, to do it he gives some hokey "it's your destiny" crap to push it onto you or Sarah. ''Broken Steel'' makes the Purifier ending less annoying but not by much.
** ''Broken Steel'''s ending isn't much better as the Enclave Squad Sigma aren't as "elite" as they are hyped up to be and the ending boils down to being pointlessly evil or pointlessly good by selecting who gets blown up.

** Doc Church if you rely on him for stimpaks and other meds early in the game: "You best have cancer, because from the look of it your breaking rule number one right now."
